Feature #310562, revision 2
- Title: Dashboard Install GUI
+ Title: disregard

openFATE: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jeremy Thornton (leebrad)
Partner organization:

- Create a dashboard install on the DVD at the installation screen to
- help new users better understand the install options available to them.
- By this I mean where the selections come up to install Gnome, KDE, etc.
- that a dashboard listing replace it showing the Gnome, KDE, LXDE, XCFE,
- JeOS, Server, and Server/Server GUI as separate icons rather than a
- drop down list to select. Additionally, as the user scrolls across the
- icon it would give them a a summary description of the type of system
- it will install and possibly a screenshot or two to see if they will
- like it visually. Then as the install proceeds the user can customize
- the package selection later as is currently part of the system.
+ This was accidently triple posted. Disregard this one. The system
+ experienced a processing error and posted too many. Please
+ close/delete.

Business case (Partner benefit): Users for the most part naturally take the path of least
resistance so dashboard will provide both choice and GUI ease of use
for the user while offering something innovative to the installer that
to date Ubuntu has not implement but is possibly on the verge
especially with the intro of Meerkat.
